Resolved Question

constant reinstallation of updates

by The ancient one / May 11, 2015 7:34 AM PDT

There are two updates one for MS Office 2010 (KB2825635)and one for Office File validation 2010 (KB2553065). These two constantly appear in the update folder. And everytime I reboot my computer they are both reinstalled. I did a clean installation of Windows 7 on April 7 and these two updates were installed on that date (along with many others). There are over 50 installations of these updates. How can I get rid of them and how can I stop the reinstallation.

In reply to: True.

I decided to go back to the way I used to handle updates which was to let MS download updates but let me choose which ones I want to install.
